Brewery Laboratory

Sick of the drab gray speckled carpet office room – we decided to tear it up and turn our office into a lab where we can count yeast and create various scientific concoctions.

First Matt started by angrily ripping up the carpet – after spending countless hours in the office doing brewery accounting, he had developed a special hatred toward it.

After the carpet was removed, we had the enjoyable experience of scraping up all the left over carpet glue. This was a fun task that involved some sort of solvent (we tried several, all with varying degrees of success), a scraper, shop vac and lots of elbow grease.

Next up was to use our good ol’ friend the degreaser from episodes “Sealing The Brewery Floor Part 1 & Part 2“. For kicks, we donned our safety equipment to bring back memories.

Then we really did have to use our safety equipment as we acid etched the floor. Having done this three times before (one was a mulligan) we were now basically pros.

We then painted the floor, careful not to paint ourselves into a corner.

Once the paint dried we called upon the brewery magi who magically installed rubber coving, a lab table and caution tape (aka we forgot to take pictures), but we imagine it looked something like this:

We then thoroughly tested the brewery lab

    u guys are really into product and quality analysis–oscilloscope and all! meanwhile, i’ll just rely on my taste buds–LOL!

  2. Looking awesome- can’t wait to build up our yeast lab. Next time I’m in the area I’ll bring some Two Kids beer by and talk shop!
